This week's video comes to us from the still-wintry climes of the Northeast, where Yale men's heavyweight crew took on the Bears of Brown over the weekend. The video, shot from the launch, may not have sound, but the result was a resounding early season victory for the visiting team on the Seekonk River (though the race was tighter than the times would indicate—the Bulldogs were leading by a length until a crab by Brown slowed the crew down in the final 200m).

Not deterred by the recent cancellations, 345 crews are scheduled to take to the championship course on Sunday—a figure well down on the 420 who used to fill the entry, however. The fickle nature of exchange rates are thought to be an additional factor in this reduction, as seen by the reduced overseas entries, further to the uncertainty that the recent cancellations have brought.

This week's video offers an intense look at life as a member of Oxford University Boat Club. The crews for the 2015 Boat Races were announced on Friday, and this year's event will be historic in that it will be the first time that the men's and women's races have been held on the Tideway together on the same day. While there's evidence that the Cambridge men and women have made strides over the course of their winter training, so far the bookmakers and the pundits agree that Dark Blue is the favored colo(u)r to win again this year.
